Click Here to get more details on this card and compare to other cards!

Update: 6/16/15:
So I smed chase again and got the same response, denying to match to 140k. I then called Chase and got a very nice rep who tried to match it for me but was unsuccessful. It said in her system that they were only matching to 140k credit cards that were applied before April 30th. I applied May 14th. She then gave me 5k Ritz points as a courtesy and told me to try to call Ritz Rewards and ask them to replace my 2 free nights with the equivalent amount of points (probably not 140k). I did just that and the Ritz rep said she cannot do that. Blah blah.....
This really sucks <img src="http://s3.amazonaws.com/tapatalk-emoji/emoji35.png" />

Update: 3/23/15: Many recent reports of successful match to 140k offer via SM
Updated link: https://creditcards.chase.com/credit-cards/ritz-carlton-card.aspx
Standard offer is for 2 free nights at Ritz Cat 1-4 which is not too bad either.

Update 2/9/15: DEAD     
current offer  140k bonus points +$300 airline credit annual fee 395 not waived
link https://www.theritzcarltonrewardscard.com/offer140k

To get $300 airline credit call 1-855-896-2222
don't buy gift cards from Chase affiliated airlines (United, SW..)
As Chase may be able to see what you purchased

JetBlue seat upgrades and delta seat upgrades worked for me.
Airline GC are very YMMV as there are reports of chase asking for receipts.
(Seat upgrades are officially covered in the T & C.)

If true this isn't good. Would cancelling card now help? and what if I have the card open for a few years already and didn't get any recent bonus? (I got nights not points)

With enough calling and convincing you can get almost anything travel related refunded.
Unless the first agent put it in the notes not to refund.  >:( >:(

Got letter in mail that Ritz card will now be offering a free annual night in hotel valued up to 50,000 points (I guess after the merger). I was in a rush and read it quickly but I believe the point structure will be the same as the SPG card. (and the option of earning Plat status after $75K, which is suppose to be for the new AMEX SPG card as well)

On old ritz cards, will anniversary night right after August 1st if the fee is due?
Will it post to accounts with cards that don't have annual fee due to low CL?
(Recent DP show they don't charge the second year either)

Was just able to extend Ritz 3 free nights for 2nd year in row after a couple HUCA’s. As usual they mentioned this is a “one time exception”...

That’s great. How long were you able to extend them? By calling Ritz Carlton directly I assume - or Chase?

Called the number on back of Ritz for the Elite Rewards Guest Services and they extended it for another year.
